    I have this same ride posted here http://www.motoidaho.com/node/831 for next Sunday 4-22 if anyone is interested.

    The day started out with some hot coffee and drizzling rain. our first stop was Map Rock along the Snake river.

    Our next stop was Celebration Park http://www.idahoocta.org/Celebration_Park.pdf for some more Petroglyphs.

    Then we got above the river for some 2 track.

    Once we got to Swan Falls dam we pushed the bikes across and got into some fun stuff "Rocks, Sand, Tumble weeds:huh?"

    With all the wind we had it looks like it moved all the tumble weeds in the county here....

    My bike got so many in the front and rear wheels my bike just stopped, till I pulled them out. I ended up walking the road and pushing them out of the way to make some kind of path to ride. It was not long before it opens back up and we were off and going again. :clap
    Next stop Wees Bar
